Last Sunday and this Sunday, Jesus as the King of Glory was a major point of the sermon. On the Mount of Transfiguration, Jesus revealed His glory for a moment, answering the prevalent question of the hour, “Who is He?” Peter, James and John never forgot the revelation of Jesus’ glory they beheld on the mountain. Years later, Peter said, “We beheld His Glory, the One and Only!”
Surveying the Old Testament, the King of Glory was one of the names of the Messiah. Messianic texts spoke of a King coming to Jerusalem, “Swing wide oh ancient gates and let the King of Glory enter!”
Today’s question as a followup to Jesus Our King: How is your worship? Jesus is the King of Glory! When we worship Him, there must be a sense of being humble, of realizing His “majestic splendor,” of lifted hands and bent knees, a true sense of awe. The light of God, shining out from Jesus’ face like the sun, the lightning brilliance of His clothing and the greatness of His character should cause us to fear and reverence Jesus.
Jesus is the King of Glory! How can you speak to Him in worship today?
